Mountain Bike Access Issues Flaring Up in San Diego County
I think what would help is in on trails that are shared and considered “multi use” mountain bikers need to stop building in those areas without public approval. I had a place I went almost every day after work that was close to my home in southern Orange County that was slowly transformed from a natural trail system into a berm and jump highway that took away from the challenge of riding it and irritated the hikers and horse folks. This was due to a large influx of people as housing developments moved in nearby. The place went from a nice hidden gem for a quick lap, to a place I would ride through to get to where fewer people went to avoid the crowds. I get that the governments and stewards of the land are part of the problem, but mountain bikers in general need to be aware that sharing the land means actually being cognizant of our impacts on other people that use these trails. You can’t be building a jump line on a piece of single track that was already space limited. You have people with full face helmets blasting down public trails with no regard for what’s around the next switchback and that just pisses people on the trail off. I miss being able to ride year round down there, but that’s about it.

Pinkbike Announces Acquisition of Road Cycling Site CyclingTips
Rarely do I feel a strong need to comment, but people saying that road cycling to augment off mountain bike time will have detrimental effects, or not help with mountain bike fitness seem like they’re commenting to just stir the pot. Regardless of the bike you’re on it’s a case of you getting out of it what you put in. It doesn’t make any sense to bad mouth a different type of cycling.

Review: Industry Nine's New Hydra Hubs Have 690 Points of Engagement
@PivotMach: One can certainly hope so. I get the downvotes for my comment, but I actually own a set and still use them, it’s just a big letdown to pay that much for a wheel and have bearing seals that are like a screen door.

They could have just fixed the piss poor seals and bearings they used and that would have been nice.

Tariffs on Chinese Bicycles & Parts Will Begin Next Week
@Svinyard: C’mon man, the only places anyone is seeing any real wage growth are in jobs they can’t get people to do. Pure demand is driving that rise, most folks are seeing their income growth offset by inflation. The economy is doing well for sure, but people keep making the incorrect association that a good economy means wage growth and prosperity for the average folks, not the case.

First Ride: 2019 Giant Trance 29
@Clarkeh: Not the first bike company to reverse their stance on 29 inch wheels, I believe Yeti called them circus wheels a couple years back and said they weren’t going that route.

Pinkbike Poll: What's the Most You'd Spend on a Mountain Bike?
I built my bike from new old stock, new take-offs from bikes that people with more money than me upgraded right out of the box. Deeply discounted 26 inch parts. Problem is over the past few years those parts and wheels have limited options for transferring to a new frame. So now it’s all about trying to make the investment last as long as possible because the big ticket items won’t be able to be moved to a new frame. It’s a bummer, but when I finally do pull the trigger on a new bike I can’t see spending more than 4 grand for a replacement.

Taking The Plunge in a Quest to Become a Pro Racer
@deco1: How exactly is any sponsorship someone receives undeserved? If you already don’t know, this sport, like many others, is expensive. Why would you knock someone for at least asking for some help? And when that person receives a little help, why do you feel like it’s a personal affront to you? Just because you purchase bike parts doesn’t mean that you automatically put in the work, go to races, attempt to succeed, and then are authorized to comment on someone you believe is undeserving of sponsorship. Freedom to speak on something doesn’t necessarily mean that what you’re saying is right.
